Applications in bottled water

Your needs for filtration are unique. Different water sources, brand requirements and local legislative requirements may vary from one factory to another. That’s why you need a range of options and a breadth of products to provide the quality and reliability you need for consistently clear, better tasting water.

Particle control

The first step for success in bottled water is to reduce or eliminate turbidity caused by particles. Keeping a high flow rate while working to increase the quality of your product and driving down operating costs can be a challenge. 3M particle control filters offer reliable particle control, fewer filter change-outs and longer service life than conventional filters while maintaining high flow rates.

Pre-filter

The key to economical, long lasting final filtration is often the selection of the right prefilter. Prefilters protect and extend the service life of final filters, resulting in an overall reduction of operating costs. See how 3M prefilters can help improve your bottom line.

Final filter

3M microporous membrane filters can help bottlers control microorganisms just before filling occurs. As a physical barrier, 3M final filters can work in concert with other technologies, such as UV lights or ozonation, as part of a multi-barrier approach to water quality. Several 3M LifeASSURE series filters are available for bottlers to choose from, including the BLA100 series (certified by NSF to Standard 53 to help control Cryptosporidium), the BNA series (very high log reduction of bacteria) and the BDA series (sterilizing-grade filtration).

Gas control

Dissolved gases can have an impact on the taste and texture of beverages. There are many applications in the beverage industry that require the addition or removal of oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and even alcohol compounds. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors operate in-line and provide precise dissolved gas control in a compact design enabling a small system footprint.

Pre-RO filter

Reverse osmosis (RO) is used in many facilities to produce purified water. Protecting RO membranes with pre-filtration is best practice for increasing the service life of RO membranes and reducing operating costs. 3M filtration provides absolute rated, high capacity filters to help provide consistent RO filter protection.

Sterile tank vents

Once the treatment of the product water is complete, the water can be moved to a storage tank prior to packaging. To help maintain the water quality as the storage tank is filled and drained, use a sterile air vent filter. As the water is drained from the tank, the vent filter will remove microorganisms from the incoming air.
